Integration of geophysics and archaeology: exploring a burial site of the 4th to 7th century near Nizhny Novgorod, Russia

This paper is intended to compare the results obtained with use of different geophysical methods (geomagnetics, electrical resistivity tomography, ground-penetrating radar and seismics) on a archaeological site and discuss the prospects of such an integration between geophysics and archaeology. The relevant experience thus obtained should help to locate more efficiently the buried structures (graves) in the subsurface. This research was carried out within the framework of the Field Camp 2014 devoted to exploration of the 4th to 7th century burial site near Nizhny Novgorod, Russia.
